Springfield, Illinois, US
Natural speaking voice has a fair amount of bass and a southern midwestern twang. I can take that out(I think :-) and believe I can provide a wide variety of voice timber, type and quality for customers.
Projects that require southern accents or deep voices or a tough guy persona (think Clint Eastwood gravel) would come very natural but any project require a male voice at any age can be accommodated.
I have been in IT for a long time and technical jargon doesn't phase or intimidate me. In fact, were a client to need some consulting regarding tech I could provide that as well.
Ideally I wouldn't mind being the next movie trailer guy and a special goal for me is to get a VO gig on a cartoon or movie that my son would get to hear daddy on.
Though when young I did a fair amount of singing and vocals in stage performances, choirs, musicals etc, I am just now starting out in this business so get time and projects with me before my voice is widely known.

I do not yet have any paid voice over work but I am very excited to get started.
I do have a ton of experience in education and consulting so I have talked for a living before. I have been in technical communications for many years starting as a communications specialist in the Marine Corps and then moving into IT telephony and data communications. So, items like diction and dialect are concepts I am well aware of.
I did sing and perform vocals in many different venues in my youth including musicals, choirs, etc...
My voice is on the telephone system of a couple of my IT customers.
